In the event of an emergency (natural or intruder), we ask that our parents follow these simple procedures:
Do not telephone the school! While we certainly understand why you want to do so, your restraint will allow telephone lines to remain clear for emergency communication. This includes cell phone lines.
Turn your radio to KTTR 1490 AM/99.7 FM or KZNN 105.3 FM for emergency announcements. If students are to be kept at school or are being taken to a designated location, the media will be advised.
Do not come to the school building. To allow for the access of emergency vehicles, it will be necessary to keep the streets and parking lots clear. In addition, your child may not even be at the school but already taken to the pre-determined alternate location.
Impress upon your children the importance of following the directions of any school personnel, especially in times of an emergency.
WE CAN NOT EMPHASIZE HOW IMPORTANT YOUR COOPERATION IS IN AN EMERGENCY. BEING PREPARED IS IN THE BEST INTEREST OF YOUR CHILDREN!
